Super Bowl TV spot for Need for Speed

Need for Speed Movie - Pulse Big Game Spot

This certainly looks like a movie based on a videogame based on cars driving really fast. The upcoming Need for Speed movie debuted a spot during the Super Bowl that completely lacks the fervor of last year’s Fast & Furious 6 Super Bowl spot. Is it truly fair to compare the two? Not really, but when there are scenes that mirror the franchise (viewing a scene from the passenger seat, lots of behind the steering wheel shots, but no gear shifting as of yet), it’s hard not to draw a comparison. 

On its own, there are some interesting details here. That final compilation of cars driving off of cliffs is nice, and if I’m not mistaken, the police cars closely resemble the ones from the semi-recent Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit game. What do you think? Need for Speed revs into theaters March 14th.
